Reviewed 28 July 2014

Room was beautiful, quiet and spacious, very clean, good internet connexion, nice staff, excellent breakfast. Also great location, close to subway (5min walk) and grocery stores (2min walk). Highly recommended. Only problem is the lack of air conditioning in the rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view on the inner garden are quieter.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in a NON refurbished room with our two kids. The room was dark and smelly, had no AC (Vienna can get quit hot in summer) and beds were old. This family hotel refurbishes 5 rooms per year, so check in advance before accepting a room. Breakfast is fine, as well as the location of the hotel. Subway Rathaus is 300 mtrs away. Great restaurants in the vicinity!

I must admit that when I first arrived my impression of the hotel lobby wasn't great, but that quickly changed. The rooms are very clean and efficient. The large bathroom and big tub were a nice surprise. The room faced into a courtyard so it was very quiet, and the large windows opened, allowing for a cool breeze and no A/C required. Breakfast was awesome for a free hotel meal, much better than expected, they even had Secco and fresh orange juice so you could make a Mimosa, that's a nice touch! There was a large variety including yogurt, cereal, fruit and fresh breads.

The concierges were friendly and helped to recommend some restaurants and a tour.

The only downside was the location is slightly far from the centre of the city, especially on a hot day, but not too far to walk. Also, there was little "American" TV, the only english channel was BBC or CNN news, that's a bit disappointing.

Overall I would still highly recommend the Zipser.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while on our honeymoon. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is superb, not a far walk to the subway and many major attractions. The room was very clean and large. Breakfast was a nice assortment of food and was quite enjoyable.

We have just stayed for three nights at the Hotel Zipser. This is an excellent hotel situated close to the Rathaus and Museums with about a 15-20 minute walk to the shopping centre. . We had an Executive Room on the third floor. European hotel rooms can sometimes be on the small side but this room was large. Well decorated and very comfortable bed. We requested two extra pillows after our arrival and they were in our room by the time we returned from our evening meal. The bathroom and shower are tiled. I think that they have been refurbished recently. The hotel is spotless.

The breakfast is continental but with scrambled eggs and bacon and the usual varied cereals, fruit juice, breads, cheeses, fruit etc. Coffee very good - in addition there is also an excellent coffee machine if you would prefer expresso, cappuccino etc.

This hotel is excellent value - perhaps because it is a small family hotel and not part of a large chain is what makes it so special. Certainly the staff are all very helpful and speak very good English.

I can certainly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Vienna. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: If you are staying on a Saturday night, perhaps a room at the back of the hotel would be better. It...

This was our first visit to The Zipser and it won't be our last. The Room, Staff, Breakfast and Location were all excellent and rates were very reasonable for such a lovely Hotel. We felt really comfortable and at home with our surroundings. All the staff were wonderful but we have to give a special mention to Herr Habib who was so helpful to us. This Hotel has 3 Star status but we would rate it as 4 Star. Thumbs up all round for The Zipser and we will be back. Thanks for making our stay in Vienna extra special.
